Ever since Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend revealed they're expecting their third child (via his Wild video), we've been loving her social media updates about how the pregnancy is progressing. Both John and Chrissy have openly discussed seeking fertility treatment in the past – something that no doubt resonated with many other couples – to help conceive daughter Luna, 4, and son Miles, 2, whereas their third bundle of joy was a welcome surprise.
Understandably, like many expectant mothers, Chrissy shared with her fans that she's experienced a bit of anxiety along the way. Writing to her 31 million followers, she shared a sweet video of little Luna helping with her ultrasound scan.
"On weekends, we freak out! Before I’m able to start feeling the kicks, the anxiety gets the best of me and any little bits of spotting or pain freak me ouuuuuut," said Chrissy. "One day I swear I’ll buy one of these machines, but by then I’ll be all done with having monsters! But as my little Luna embarks on her very first sleepover tonight, another little one makes some big growth moves of their own. All is well."
It's worth noting that while it may feel scary, light bleeding during pregnancy generally shouldn't be cause for concern (although you should always get it checked out by a doctor if it's causing you to worry).
Chrissy also shared her wish that sonograms in general could be a little less rushed, adding that she feels lucky to have a doctor who is happy to take their time while carrying out the scan. Generally, according to the NHS, scans last for around 20 to 30 minutes.
"I think there should be vanity ultrasound places," said the mother-of-two and Cravings author. "My doctor is so generous about giving pics but some rush you along! I want a full in vitro photo shoot experience where I cough and wiggle to get the best alien baby shots lol."
Recently, Chrissy has also shared that she's been experiencing intense headaches during pregnancy and that Botox has been helping her to manage them. "I get really really bad pregnancy headaches. was thrilled to be cleared to do neck muscle botox along with a crazy combo of beta blocker shots and radio wave frequency something something doctor terms. Anyhow man it’s just so bad but I see the light finally."
Suffering headaches during pregnancy is quite common, especially during the early stages. "[They] usually improve or stop completely during the last 6 months," reads the NHS website.
Congratulations to John, Chrissy, Luna and Miles on their impending addition to the family! We bet they'll be super cute.
